March is National Craft Month, "Dreamscapes" Take-in, Nothing Bundt Cakes Fundraiser
Did you know that March is National Craft Month? That's right, according to the National Day Calendar website, in 1994, the Craft & Hobby Association created National Craft Month to help people rediscover and learn about the benefits of crafting. They suggest you observe National Craft Month by:
Attending a craft fair.
Learning about selling your craft.
Sharing your skills and teach someone your craft.
Supporting businesses that sell handmade crafts.
Taking a class and learn a new craft or skill.
And of course, CAA can help you with ALL of those things and we have a full month of arts and crafts activities to help you get in touch with your creative side.
On March 3, CAA member artist Kim Mabon hosted a Giant Paper Rose workshop which was well-attended by members of CAA and the community. Look at these happy people and their amazing creations!
CAA member artist Kathryn Duncan helped a local Girl Scout Troop earn their drawing badge on March. 9. The girls explored various 2-D mediums for their badge with this fun and imaginative project.
